Currently Obsessed


We hope you all had a nice holiday. It is that time of the month where we tell you about some of the things we are currently obsessed with.

Irene: 

Knee-length brown boots: One of my favorite aspects of fall fashion are boots! Sure I've got a few great pairs, but my fav. are a pair of knee-length brown suede boots. They're crazy comfy and chic. Best part... I got these babies for around $6 bucks at a local thrift store (I'm obsessed with thrift shopping all year long)!

Mediterranean cuisine: don't know what it is, but I'm unusually hooked on cuisines in the Mediterranean genre! Suddenly, I'm all about stuffed grape leaves, hummus, pita and anything drenched in garlic atop a delicious serving of lean meats like lamb or grilled tri tip. Mmm, Mmm, good!

Country Music: Maybe it was my recent trip to Nashville, TN. or the way I somehow always end up listening to country on the radio, but I'm hooked on country music. Lindi Ortega's latest album is heavenly! I'm also enjoying typical favs. such as the Dixie Chicks, Kacey Musgraves and Miranda Lambert.

Elissa: 

Amy Poehler's Smart Girls: with all the hype around the Goldieblox commercial and girl power it reminded me that Amy Poehler has had this same mission for a long time. To make girls feel empowered and remind them that being smart and creative is important. With videos and articles about things like science, equality and community service this site is such a great thing that Amy Poehler is doing to help girls become all they can.

Perler Beads:  Never in a million years would I have thought I would end up "crafty", but I am. I am even part of an ornament exchange club and this year I decided to try out perler beads (also known as fuse beads). Patterns for really great a creative designs are easy to find on the internet and beads are relatively inexpensive. Placing little beads on the pegboard is almost zen like and therapeutic. This is a great craft that is fun for the whole family. But be warned, you will find those little beads all over your house!

Christmas Time: It seems like every year I get more and more into the Christmas spirit. I also seem to get into this spirit earlier and earlier. No joke my Christmas cards have already been mailed out. The holiday stations are already playing on Pandora. I KNOW!! But as my kids get older the more and more the holiday season is so much more fun. Their excitement is contagious.
